Benefits of Meditation

"Meditation is the method for familiarizing our mind with virtue. It is a mind that analyzes or concentrates on a virtuous object. A virtuous object is one that causes us to develop a peaceful mind when we analyze or concentrate on it."

- Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, from Introduction to Buddhism

Our meditation classes will familiarise you with Buddha's practical advice on how to apply wisdom to your daily activities. Through taking this advice to heart in the context of our friend, family and work relationships we discover they are unsurpassed methods to resolve our daily challenges and problems.

By using meditation and gradually integrating this wisdom into our lives, we can make positive changes that will bring many benefits for both ourselves and those around us. We will find greater meaning in our daily life, our happiness will increase, and we will come to experience a lasting inner peace. How wonderful!
